Whatâ??s inside was a nightmare. Whatâ??s outside is a thousand times worse.
Welcome to Wayward Pines, the last town.
Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrived in Wayward Pines, Idaho, three weeks ago. In this town, people are told who to marry, where to live, where to work. No one is allowed to leave; even asking questions can get you killed.
But Ethan has discovered the astonishing secret of what lies beyond the electrified fence that surrounds Wayward Pines and protects it from the terrifying world beyond. And now that secret is about to come storming through the fence to wipe out this last, fragile remnant of humanity.
The Last Town at last pitches Ethan Burke and his fellow residents into all-out war against the forces outside the townâ??s gatesâ??and in doing so delivers every bit the riotously horrific, breathlessly action-packed conclusion that the Wayward Pines trilo

'Pines' and 'Wayward' were brilliant, and so i dove straight into this finale to the trilogy without pausing for air.

It's been a while since i've been treated to such unputdownable books, and to have 3 of them in a trilogy is wonderful.

As with the other two books, great writing, great characters and great all-around story telling.

And what a great ending.   Although, for me, i feel it would have been a tiny bit slightly better without the Epilogue -- it wouldn't be a good review without some negative criticism, now would it?

I am most certainly going to be reading more from Blake in the future.

I'm now a fanboy. ( )

This was the 3rd book in the trilogy and by far the best. It felt more like a story, and was full of action. This trilogy raises a number of disturbing questions, and the questions don’t have easy
Answers.

There was a lot of excitement in the final book, but I didn't like the ending very much. I feel like I might have to pull a Annie Wilkes (Nurse from King's Misery) and force Blake Crouch to write a 4th book of the trilogy. I suppose he could - after all, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was a 5 part trilogy, and nobody complained about that.

Anyway, not much point in writing a review, since anyone considering this book should already know what the story is all about by now. ( )

The book's blurb informed me as a reader this novel would have me on the edge of my seat from the very first up to the very last page. I would have thought, after having read the pretty well executed second volume, this might become true, Blake Crouch might have written a thrilling conclusion of this trilogy. But he didn't. On no point of the storyline have I been on the edge of my seat, and it managed to be even less exciting than "Pines" (which - I thought - was hardly possible anymore).

Don't get me wrong, I'd still recommend this trilogy for readers of this genre. But I didn't enjoy it as much as I think I would, and a major aspect was the translation. I'll blame the translator, Kerstin Fricke, for this, but this does not mean the book will have more stars than it should have in the German version, because Blake Crouch managed to find a translator who was capable of writing a horrible version with something about sixty or seventy spelling mistakes, missing letters (or even words) and absolute chaos. Even thoughts were depicted with speech marks, so that everytime I read them, I thought at first it was part of what the characters spoke.

The writing style was not as exhausting as in "Pines", but neither was it as good as in "Wayward". And - seriously - this was about an exciting subject, but I felt myself so bored I sometimes thought about skipping the next thirty pages. It was obvious who would be going to survive and who wouldn't. The end was thrilling and even made me wish for a sequel, but it was unable to make up for the first 250 pages.

Hence, I'll give this a good rating of 2,5 stars, rounded down to 2 because the novel was unable to live up to the standards of the previous two volumes. ( )

This book didn't live up to the other two. The ending felt like the author was out of steam and just wrote something. But you do need to read it to find out the end of the story ( )
